Facebook would like to move into China, but in order to have access to such a potentially profitable market, it might remove some of its features rather than provide "too much free speech." As this article from The Telegraph details:
Facebook could block content in some countries, a Washington lobbyist for the company has said. Adam Conner, a 25-year-old junior lobbyist for the company, said that it has faced uncomfortable positions over offering "too much, maybe, free speech" in countries that are not happy with such an approach.
There has been increasing speculation that the company has plans to enter the potentially lucrative Chinese market, probably in collaboration with a local partner.
"Maybe we will block content in some countries, but not others," Adam Conner told the Wall Street Journal."We are occasionally held in uncomfortable positions because now we're allowing too much, maybe, free speech in countries that haven't experienced it before."
